item #18: FREE sparkly a 3D Jesus keychain-

I used to have a little shop in Baltimore, right down by the water in Fells Point. It was called 9th Life and it's how I put myself through college without student loans.

Many of my friends were artists, I would sell their pieces there- I scoured thrift shops back when you could really find treasures.

Homicide:Life on the Street was filmed right across the street and there was many a joke centered on "Homicide: Life without parking" because production could take up everything. Many of my friends worked in the union in Baltimore on the different shows and films being shot in and around Charm City and once they were going to film in my shop, but it was deemed "really too small"-- and it was. Here's me on my birthday one year:

anyway, I used to go up to NYC every month on buying trips, and would hit the wholesale markets, looking for sparkly fun treasure on the cheap. Yesterday I opened a box of things from the store. My item 18 is a little pack of New York City street sparkles:

a pair of wooden and rhinestone hairsticks, a sheet of eye-glitters. and since Husband is off in Sacramento lighting a Jesus convention, in his honor, i added this 3D Jesus & Mary keychain to the pile. (if you've ever seen Husband, they may think he IS Jesus)

*a batch of barrettes on cards that I would print up with whatever words were on my mind at the time.

just leave in the comments, what you believe I should see/do/buy while in NYC next trip (end of Jan)- i will pick a winner in the morning.

Will ship off to anywhere on this big planet! ps. Thanks to @spacedlaw for donating the dollar amount of her auction win of the Neil mug to save the kitties at @AvaloCats.

pps. If you see me on social media ANYTIME after this, tell me to GO FINISH MY SCRIPT. today is writing day. *scrams.


  1. i really like the staten island ferry, ride over just before dusk and ride back as sun sets and city lights up, magical.

  2. I've never been to NY, but I know my daughter would say "GO SEE THE BOOK OF MORMON!" (She would yell it, so you'd know how important it is :D) I would love to win this pack for my girl, so she could have a tiny piece of NY to hold on to until she can get there herself ^_^

  3. I have never been to New York, but several things have caught my attention over the years: the raised train track made into a park and the gargoyle walk are among the many

  4. Go see the Sirs (McKellen and Patrick, that is) in Waiting for Godot. It was brilliant. Funny, engaging, Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley rock. I had always hated Godot and they made me love it. There till end of March. (This is Katie, or dabbler, or owlsmom...)

  5. i cry a little bit to think some people haven't been to NYC, but I guess I still haven't been to the Great Wall of China (imma get there one day!)

  6. For me, any trip is about the food. Search out the best and quirkiest eateries you can find.
    These are places *I'd* love to try out

  7. My favorite place to go in NY is the Neue Galerie. I stumbled on it by accident while wandering around since it was a Monday and I didn't realize the Met would be closed. I adore Klimt so I literally teared up when I first saw some of this artwork in person. You should go if you haven't already.
